Hi All:

I need help finding two references that relate head/brain angular acceleration and angular velocity to injury. One reference has been cited by numerous authors but the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM) does not have a copy of it nor publish it in their proceedings. The second reference (which has also been widely cited) is in a German journal that I have been unable to find. Any help would be much appreciated; the references are:

1. Ommaya A.K. "Head Injury Biomechanics". George G. Snively Memorial Lecture, Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine, Denver, CO, 1984.

2. Lowenhielm, P.: " Dynamic Properties of the Parasagittal Bridging Veins," Z. Rechtmedizin 1974, 74: 55-62.
